McALESTER—Officers of the Heavener FFA chapter participated in the 2016 Oklahoma FFA Chapter Leadership Training Conference on Tuesday in McAlester.
The eight state FFA officers planned and conducted this year’s conference based on the theme “The Bottom Line.”
Elected officers from each of the 80 high school FFA chapters in the southeast district attended leadership training designed to equip their teams with exciting tools to help them best serve their chapters during this school year.
Rhett Laubach of Edmond was the keynote speaker for the conference. He was the state FFA president in 1992-93 and is an accomplished professional speaker and leadership coach.
“We are asking chapter officers to examine the foundation of what makes being a chapter officer so unique and special,” said Cale Jahn, state FFA president. “Then we are going to discuss how to engage our members to create success at the local, state and national FFA levels.”
Officers attended from the Heavener chapter were president Megan Alexander, vice president Christian Schiffner, secretary Michaela Stacy, treasurer Emily Yandell, reporter Abbi Moody, sentinel Brock Stacy and advisor Jeremy Krebbs.
COLT Conference is sponsored by Public Service Company of Oklahoma as a special project of the Oklahoma FFA Foundation. FFA is an integral part of the agricultural education division of the Oklahoma Department of CareerTech Education.
There are 27,166 Oklahoma FFA members in 359 high schools statewide.
